Starbucks Repackaged

Designed by Lippincott, United States.

From the start, we wanted to recognize and honor the important equities of the iconic Starbucks logo. So we broke down the four main parts of the mark — color, shape, typeface and the Siren. After hundreds of explorations, we found the answer in simplicity. Removing the words from the mark, bringing in the green, and taking the Siren out of her ring. For forty years she’s represented coffee, and now she is the star.

The details came next. The 20-year old logo was built in the early days of AutoTrace and it showed — points everywhere. We improved composition, brought in more sophisticated stroke width and spacing and a smoother line flow. When it came to her — the Siren — we enhanced her form in subtle ways, smoothing her hair, refining her facial features, weighting the scales on her tail to bring the focus to her face. We enlisted the branding firm of Lippincott to help with these refinements, and give us a better global perspective on the entire identity system.

  1. Although this is quite a clean design I think the old on suits better this brand, I' not sure about this new one.

  2. That is a nice change, I'm sure it is very well appreciated

  3. i miss the old one already !!!
    the vintage look has much more starbucks identity.
    Coca Cola never had to change their logo, when something works well maybe the best thing is the leave how it is.

  4. i thought it was a joke.
